We visited on a Tuesday evening for dinner. First impression is a large parking lot with room for tour buses. Only one was present, and the restaurant was relatively quiet. The grounds were very attractive and impressive. We were quickly seated at a nice table with a scenic view.

The menu was very expansive, with an emphasis on seafood. The mixed seafood platter looked wonderful, but was way too much for two. So we settled on mixed seafood fried rice, soft shell crabs in garlic, and grouper with vegetables sautéd in oyster sauce. The waitress was young and her English left a lot to be desired, but we managed to place an accurate order.

The plates arrived promptly - in less than 10 minutes and all together. Presentation was nice, and the fried rice and grouper were excellent. The crab was okay too, but a bit dry. Total bill including non alcoholic drinks was about 1000 Baht, which I considered to be reasonable. They accepted credit cards for payment, which is not a given here.

All in all a very pleasant experience. We'll be back.

A final note is that I read other reviews while waiting for our food and was actually surprised at how quick the service was. Presumably it is slower when several tour busses arrive at the same time.

We booked a table, but we came 20 minutes too late and our table was gone. But that was okay, they offered us a couple of other free tables and we could choose one with a nice view.
Its hard to find good cocktails in Thailand, so i will not say anything..we tried! Couldn't drink.
We ordered the most simple Thai dishes and waited for 40 minutes. What we got was worse than in any little Thai 5-minutes-cafes.
And at the end we payed a high bill for the bad mood they gave us.
Recommended only to see the view. Nothing else.

I stayed in Thailand about 2 years, travel all around it, and this place is the worst I ever been! Really, so pricey place and u get nothing what u payed for! Service is just terrible, nobody understand u clearly. Not flexible at all, we try to get some veggie food and they cooked worse then smallest Thai restaurant i even comes! We book a table with nice sunset view but they give us small place on the corner, with big plant just in front of my face... only good thing is beautiful view and just amazing big tree on the side of restaurant! I can recommend just come for watching sunset. And yeah non alcoholic cocktails horrible as well!

We had a very early dinner here, which meant that we could take our time & wait for the sun to set. This place is about 30 minutes out of Pattaya, but it is worth the drive. The view is very good, the ambiance here is also very good. The place has a really nice look & feel to it and the food and service is also good.
Prices are reasonable.
